Saturday - My word! They’re tall!!!!

Greetings from Glastonbury!
Thanks for popping in.
It’s great being in a different world for a week,
with Dave, Paul and Earle.


Blogging not easy though, because in this world there is next to no internet! But I really wanted to show you some of the quirky characters here!

Meet Gareth the Mighty.
He was brilliant. So funny!
Look him up.
His Facebook page is


And check out the old men carrying the mermaid and merman.
Fantastic costumes.



Check out these two!



All the artists get right into the act;
completely immersed in character.


And then they got really tall!



This impressed me muchly.
Bless these guys.
They were giving strollers parking tickets,
joshing with the kids and parents,
and having a blast xxxx


And the crows!
They were phenomenal!
Dave was stood with one for a photo, 
when suddenly the others swooped in, calling photo bomb!!


So, peace and happiness from Glastonbury...


Highlights yesterday?
Royal Blood, Future Islands Lianne La Havas,
the Silent Disco
and all the performing artists.

Ding Ding.
Round two.
Up and at ‘em on Day 2.
Highlights for us today?
Well, Foo Fighters, Solange, Katy Perry, KT Tunstall, 
Corinne Bailey Rae, The Jacksons...

Love & Hugs,
Barb

    1. Hi bloggy friends - hope that all is as well as can be, with you all. Neill is back to improving again now (after his recent setback) and that makes me feel so much better too! I just want to share something with you that 'our Barbara' put on FB, as I know that some of you don't see what is on there. The next time she is on our screens - she will be bringing both stamps and Groovi Christmas - designed by the wonderful Jayne Nestorenko! Keep saving your pennies! Love and hugs to you all, Gilly xxx

    2. I saw that Gilly, I haven't used Jayne's last year plates yet as I didn't get them in time for Christmas !

      Glad to hear Neill is improving. Xx

    3. Hi Gilly, you naughty girl as if I would need them !!!!!!.
      I love the plates for Christmas with the peace etc.
      saving pennies for a larger order just trying to decide which I really need but Keep changing my mind.
      Glad to hear Neil is a little better.
      Hope all.ladies are well not forgetting the men.
      Hugs to all.

    5. Thanks for your kind comments about Neill - he enjoyed his outing to a garden centre yesterday. Lynn - how could you say that I'm naughty, I haven't said that I shall buy any!?! Good luck with deciding just what you 'need' - can you really disregard 'want'? Hugs Gilly xxx

    6. Hi Gilly,
      Thanks for the info as I don't do Facebook. I'll definitely be saving up! I've loved all of Jayne's plates and stamps so will have to have these to complete the set!

  14. Glad you're having a good time, great pics. I turned on to watch the Pretenders, turned right off when she just had to use the 'c' word and I don't mean Christmas! Hope it keeps dry for you except that does mean your posh wellies don't get an outing ! X

    3. Hi Diane,
      Sounds good! As for the cake, I'd love some but as I'm trying to lose weight I'm avoiding them. Mind you I did make a Victoria Sponge for a friend's birthday as he loves it - that was my cake fix!!! Love and hugs Alison xx

Please give us the Glastonbury atmosphere in stamp form so that we can be free and crazy all year round, not just at festival times........thanks so much xx Enjoy the rest of your stay xx

  27. Hi Barb,
    Fabulous pictures. Looks and sounds as though you're all having a great time. Have you met up with Leonie this year? Watched Jools Holland with Ruby Turner - what a voice she's got, Kaiser Chiefs and the two blokes from Squeeze which I enjoyed but disappointed with a lot of the others that have been on tv as it all seems to be rap which I don't like - but that's just me! The flowers in you hair look great - don't know why you were worried. Pleased that you're chilling out anyway. Lovely ve and hugs Alison xxx

    1. Hi bloggy friends,
      Hope you've all had as good a day as possible. Had an extremely lazy day day, I was really tired ( must be all the swimming!) Mind you I did get to play with the new glitters and sticky ink which are lovely - so fine. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, love and hugs Alison xxxx

    2. Hi Alison - thanks for your comment above. I'm sure that you enjoyed having a lazy day - same for me, as I did lots yesterday and went shopping and bought half-price shoes and a handbag in the sales! I shall need to save up now for some Groovi goodies. I did see those glitters, but not weakened yet. I am also trying to lose some weight, but still having a little cake too! Some progress, but slow - as long as it keep going in the right direction I don't mind! Love and hugs, Gilly xxx

  30. How fun to see your blog. I have recently discovered you on Youtube with your tutorials. I am just loving them! You posted them several years ago and it is nice to see that you are still around. Funny to see you in Glastonbury. I am a graduate of Glastonbury High School in Conn. USA I believe it is the only other Glastonbury in the world.
